Saki ch175: Ice and Charcoal

In Japanese, "ice and charcoal" is a way of saying that two people or two things oppose each other completely. Another way is "like shield and spear". In English, we would say "to be like fire and water".
This chapter is heavy on the mahjong but short on pages sadly (only 12).

The fated showdown between the two powerful lieutenants: Yuan vs Hitomi.

For the 30 yen incident, watch the "Kuro's Birthday" anime short released in 2015, if you haven't. There aren't any subs for it though.

And a Biyori chapter about the Achiga girls.

Shinohayu ch44 & Toki ch10

It's not very important but on the first page of this Shinohayu chapter, the white text that appears next to the panels in the original version says the first meeting between Chihiro and Yuzuha occurred "3 months earlier, when the air was still cold". This contradicts what Chihiro says later about her being in 5th year of elementary school. The white text must be wrong obviously. Maybe what they meant was "1 year AND 3 months earlier"? We can't know for sure so I simply removed that part of the sentence. I think this sort of text is added by the editors, not the authors, so probably someone at the magazine was confused and messed up the dates.
Now, with that out of the way, here are the links. Enjoy:

And another chapter of Toki.

Saki ch173: Recovery & Biyori ch64: Shindouji 3

After Shiraitodai-hen ended last chapter, we now return to the match for 5th. The story jumps to the middle of the sergeant battle which is shorter than ever.
Notice that next chapter, in about a month, will be published on a Tuesday (unusually) due to Golden Week in Japan.

Shinohayu ch43 & Toki ch09

Komosawa Middle are already in the prefectural final as an interesting but nearly unknown event of the past comes to light.

This is the Toki chapter from the previous issue. Notice that I added an extra page at the end with a couple of translation notes that were too long to include in the margin of the page.

Oh, and just so you know, there wasn't any Biyori chapter in the previous issue so the only Biyori that needs to be translated is the one from this month.

Saki ch172: Champion

As you can see, no problems with the raws this time. I was a little worried last week, but everything seems fine now. Also, starting this issue, there is a digital edition of Young Gangan, which really helps too. Anyway, last time we had a fully-inked, 100% complete chapter (yay!) but two in a row would be too much for us to bear so no luck.
